Hopefully they'll allow people to deplane.

ETA: Looks like it took off around 10 mins ago.

Doesn't justify booking or boarding this flight (except in true emergency after consulting one's LOR), but this flight looks like it will land about 2 hours before sunset.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I posted before it departed, but how much time will it take pax to go through customs and take a cab to Jlem...
LY refused to let anyone off the plane.
Sadly, people will never learn.

Truly astounding that the lesson will never be learned.
Even if you book the flight no one is forcing you to board if it is delayed several hours.

IDK. Presumably they will help people speed things up. Who says they're going to Jlem, could be heading elsewhere. Doesn't make things better. And doesn't justify potentially taking a Jewish cab driver that will drop them off just before sunset and have no choice but to drive on Shabbos after dropping the passengers off.

Unfortunately, I have to side with ELAL on this one. Why should they almost definitely cause additional chilul Shabbos for other passengers just because some passengers did the irresponsible thing and booked themselves on a Thursday evening flight from NY to TLV.

I really think they should have every passenger boarding these flights sign an acknowledgement and waiver.

No idea, however if the flight left 5 hours late wouldn't that mean that they boarded at least 2 hours late. (working under the assumption that max tarmac delay allowed is 3 hours)
